Yale University Art Gallery displays art from nearly all cultures, but it's most famous for its collection of early Italian paintings, African sculptures, and modern art. Located in several buildings on the university campus, the gallery also houses world-renowned collections of American decorative and fine arts from as far back as the 17th century. Of particular note is the small collection of rare American silver. Opened in 1832, the gallery recently underwent renovations to connect three separate galleries while maintaining their distinct architectural styles; it reopened in 2012.

This is a gem of a museum with an excellent selection, thoughtfully displayed. It was a special treat to see the American Illustration exhibit with those gorgeous Parrishes and Wyeths.

I love going to museums and when they are free, that’s the best. Well I gotta say that this might be the best one I’ve ever been to. I was not honestly expecting much but I made the day trip up from NYC and I just loved it. The art on display is amazing. You can really get lost in everything that they have to offer. Parking wasn’t too hard to get on a Sunday. And the staff was very friendly. They do have lockers for your stuff so that was helpful. The only thing that they didn’t have was any kind of gift shop because I collect magnets from my trip and they didn’t have anything to add to my collection.
Amazing place with many different artists and exhibitions! Unbelievable that is completely free!! It has four levels in total, you will definitely need a whole day to enjoy the gallery at its fullest. I highly recommend this place.
I highly recommend this place. The gallery is exquisite. The masterpieces they have on display are amazing! Where would you get this kind of thing anywhere else? Thank you for keeping it free and available to the public. What an amazing place to visit. Highly recommend.
Great museum with tons of collections. It’s free. No one can see through all collections at once, so focus on what interests you! The staffs are helpful and have passion for the history of the building.
My 1st time at Yale's ART Gallery was indeed a memorable one. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The facility was clean and spectacular. The artwork... A M A Z I N G!!! If you never been, need something to do, and you love or you're interested in art, then this place is for you.
